An East Toledo man was arrested and charged Saturday with robbing a South Toledo restaurant.
Kenneth Scott of 546 East Broadway was arrested by Toledo police in a room at the Budget Inn, 2450 South Reynolds Rd.
About 7:40 p.m., police responded to a robbery at Blimpie's Subs and Salads, at 5318 Heatherdowns Blvd.
Workers told police a man claming to have a gun took money from the restaurant's cash drawer and fled to the motel.
A witness chased and tackled the man in the parking lot of the Budget Inn and recovered most of the money taken before the suspect escaped and ran into a room of the motel.
Police searched a motel room and arrested Mr. Scott for the robbery.
